(Des Moines) A new poll out this week seems to show that long-time Republican candidate and activist Bob Vanderplaats could get the U-S Senate nomination of his party should he decide to run.
The poll was conducted by Citizens United Political Victory Fund. And it shows that if the primary were held today, Vanderplaats would get about 28-percent of the vote…with the announced G-O-P candidates getting single-digits.
Craig Robinson of Theiowarepublican.com says those poll numbers aren’t necessarily good for Vanderplaats.
“I was kind of surprised that it was actually that low,” stated Robinson. “You must get 35-percent to get past a state convention to actually win the nomination. And secondly, Bob has been running for office as long as I have, so he is universally known.”
Another poll in the Iowa Senate race released by conservative Intel shows that Democratic Congressman Bruce Braleys’ ahead of each of the announced Republican U-S Senate candidates in head-to-head matchups by at least three-percentage points.
